Mark 9:27 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 9:27

But Jesus took him by the hand
"Took hold of the hand of the child", as the Persic version renders it;

and lifted him up;
from the ground, on which he was cast by the spirit;

and he arose:
this is omitted in the Syriac and Arabic versions, though in one edition of the latter, according to De Dieu, it is rendered, "and he stood"; to which is added, "and went into his own house". The Persic version, instead of this clause, reads, "and the child was healed"; and all the expressions show, that he was perfectly well.

Mark 9:27 In-Context

25 When Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "You spirit that keeps this boy from speaking and hearing, I command you, come out of him, and never enter him again!"
26 After crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse, so that most of them said, "He is dead."
27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he was able to stand.
28 When he had entered the house, his disciples asked him privately, "Why could we not cast it out?"
29 He said to them, "This kind can come out only through prayer."
